Holly and Caleb had been best friends as children, growing up on the same street, but as teenagers they couldn't be further apart. When Caleb unexpectedly asked Holly to help him pick out a Christmas gift for his girlfriend, neither of them anticipated where it would lead. 
A young adult romantic comedy, from Stella Wilkinson, acclaimed author of The Flirting Games Series. 

A Christmas Gift is a "clean" romance, suitable for ALL ages 

"Oh what it is to be young! A funny, light and frothy read." Janie Oakes, Teen Reader Today 

Please note that this is a short story of approx 7000+ words 


Holly and Caleb grew up across the street from each other best friends. Until the day Caleb decided he wanted to be a "wolf" one of the popular bad boys. Holly misses her friend but they haven't spoken in over 90 days when he asks for help finding the perfect gift for his girlfriend. Holly has a crush on him, but she wants to do right maybe even rekindle the friendship by helping him out. Will he see the girl next door that has been right in front of him all the time?

I like Holly she's sweet even helping the guy she's in love with find the perfect gift for her girlfriend who is a girl she doesn't like. I knew right from the start that Caleb would see how wonderful Holly was after following her though her work and to a little store to find the perfect gift. They work well together, plus they were friends long before the "wolf" group was even a option. 

I'm a sucker for a sweet clean romance they are one of my favorite kind of reads so I had to read A Christmas Gift. While it's a short story it's a perfect mix of story and romance giving us a heart warming ending. I felt I was able to connect with Holly as I'm sure we've all been in her shoes at one point or another. This is my first book by the author but I enjoyed it, a beautifully written story that captures the heart. Since it's a short story perfect for a quick sweet happy ever after read, and I highly recommend checking it out.
